Film Review:-Terminator 3:- Rise of the Machines
Poster Copyright Warner Brothers


THE plot is the same, the graphics are better the pacing of the film is the same. Considering Arnold's age he looks good, almost the same as he did for the first film, which isn't bad. Like the second film the Terminator (Arnold) is sent back to protect John Connor, as well as several others, and the machines send back their newest model, a liquid metal female terminator, designed to take out other terminators. So proceeds a long chase scene with bits of future history thrown in for background. The ending of the film is a little bit of a twist and quite unique for Hollywood. Well worth watching, the special effects are very cool and make more of the inhuman natures of the two terminators. Crashing through buildings without too much damage, but destroying the buildings almost completely.

In summery the film is better than the second terminator film, Judgement Day, and I'm giving it 4 out of 5 for graphics, pacing and acting. Arnolds looking good, and this could spell his resurrection in the film industry, that's assuming his political career doesn't get in the way.
